About Charlestown & the Navy Yard…

Charlestown and the Navy Yard are a short walking distance over the North Washington Bridge. Charlestown is located on a peninsula north of the Charles River, across from Downtown Boston and adjoins the Mystic River and Boston Harbor. Charlestown’s Navy Yard was one of the oldest shipbuilding facilities in the United States Navy. The CNY established in 1801, is a self-contained track of land jutting out into the inner harbor at the water’s edge, was important during two wars with more than 200 warships built,  as well as playing a large role in maintaining and repairing thousands of vessels over a long distinguish period of service to the country. The Navy Yard officially closed active naval installation in 1974, but remains in operation to support the fully commissioned USS Constitution, museum ship USS Cassin Young on Pier 1 and is part of the Boston National Historical Park.  The CNY  was acquired by the City of Boston from the U.S. Government and was rechristened as a mixed-use neighborhood and National Historic Park. The CNY is going through another burst in development with Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital building a new state-of-the- art facility and additional residential projects about to break ground. The CNY has a range of rental and condominium properties to choose from and offers some of the best views of the Downtown skyline + harbor and is conveniently served by daily water taxi service to Boston. Residential Buildings in the CNY include: Parris Landing, Flagship Wharf, Constellation Wharf, Shipway Place, The Nautica, Harborview, Navy Yard 33 and Starboard Place/Parcel 39A.

Charlestown is dotted with a range in housing stock including tiny former worker cottages, charming Federal single-family homes and multi-family structures as well as larger brick and masonry Victorian  brownstones, near the historic Bunker Hill Monument. Very popular with young professionals and families (part of the Boston Public School System) due to the proximity to Downtown Boston, small tightly knit blocks of row houses, the historical heritage and quiet residential flavor add to the popularity of the neighborhood. City Square found in the southern part of Charlestown is the location of historic city hall and Charlestown Bridge. Thompson Square is located at the confluence of Main Street, Dexter Row, Green Street and Austin Street. Charlestown has tremendous history and ends the Freedom Trail at the Bunker Hill Monument commemorating the Battle of Bunker Hill. A restaurant opened in 1780 and still in operation, Warren Tavern claims to have been one of Paul Revere’s favorite taverns. Other notable sites in Charlestown include City Square, Winthrop Square and Soldiers Monument. Residential Condominium Buildings in historic Charlestown include: The Courtyard, Warren Green. Some of Charlestown’s most sought after addresses are found in the Gas Light District and on Monument Square.
